Something I notice on a regular basis is how people tend to over complicate their training, whether their goals be weight loss, muscle gain or improved athletic performance.
Scroll though your instagram or facebook feeds and notice how many guys and girls you see doing too much too wrong.
I’m a strong believer in sticking to the basics, and a firm devotee to keeping it simple.
Look around you, watch what others do in the gym and do the complete opposite.
Chasing fat loss, a bigger squat or just looking to shave 5 minutes off your 10km race time, your workouts need to include weight training that is planned and methodical.
These movements encompass all the basic human movement patterns, in order to be better you need to move better.
Loading up a heavy barbell or picking up heavy dumbbells to lunge and your knees are caving in from having weak glutes is not going to improve anything but your chances of injury.
Do you want a bigger deadlift? In your offseason focus on improving your efficiency with the weight as opposed to adding plates to the bar when you are not technically sound.

This year I added 30kgs to my squat between April & September, not by training 3 hours a day, or following 4 different training methodologies, using 17 different exercise variations but rather by learning to squat better.
I follow a very basic system when it comes to training my athletes and clients its changed over the years & I guarantee that it will continue to change but keeping it simple will always remain part of my methods because it works. My athletes get stronger, faster & better from applying only the essentials. My clients get leaner, fitter & healthier by doing less, more often.
If you keen to get stronger and you looking for a basic strength program that will help you shed fat, get stronger and just be better at life, give me a shout you part of my strong league now.
